  1. I don't know about CES. I'd love to head up there though man since it's so close to me. I've got my wedding coming up this year so that's taking a lot of time and energy(and money) planning for it since it's going to be in Hawaii.
  2. Surprised you didn't go with a bandpass enclosure. I know a lot of guys that have gone that route and used the top chamber as their ported and fire it into the cabin.
  3. Look at the gorilla fingers on this MF... Cool new ride, can't wait to see the audio side.
  4. Definitely mask off if you're planning on not getting overspray. I don't think you're going to get good results with a touch up. That looks like a tricky color to blend. Also, you need to be able to soft tape a line if you're planning on touch up. You're better off trying to redo a larger section of that console rather than the small area. This won't be fun if you don't know what you're doing(have experience doing so).
  5. Most obvious answer=they are different shapes. Efficiency is the real answer. Good grave dig as well, kudos.

    kicker kxa 2400.1 vs arc ks2500.1

    Run the Arc, you're welcome.
  7. I like to have as big in the sealed section for lows, as long as power and mechanical handling of the sub can take it.

    Totally get you man. I am USUALLY the one that hates making generalizations haha. Game on, we're all good

    Alignment of front and rear waves Triticum, you know that.

    By design(theory), they're supposed to have a boost in output at tuning. Not SUPPOSED to be flat, I'm not saying what they CAN or CAN'T be, just the purpose behind their design and concept.
  11. I'd do 10 sealed, 20-22 ported. Your port area looks about right though. Your lows come from that sealed section, remember that. Ported section controls roll off mostly and bandwidth. Any way to get the port to have more height and less width, I.E. getting the aspect ratio closer to a 1:1 range? I'm not saying exactly 1:1, as I know this is s blowthrough, but maybe 2:1? Something like 10X24" or 12X20"? Willing to bet it would behave better with a port like I suggested rather than the port you ran numbers on. I don't know if modeling software would tell you a gain or not, but the real world testing tells me you would likely gain with ratio closer to what I suggested.

    It always amazes me, people that don't understand the true nature of a ported enclosure is to BE peaky.

    ^^^ doesn't apply to a daily vehicle. Why are we talking about 18K to a sub rated at 1500W? A burp setup, yeah I totally get it, but not for a daily. Great first post btw.

    Subs up, port back is the loudest setup in that particular SUV, yes. Since you're basically unlimited on space is easy to get the right amount of port length dinner the box just grows to compensate the port size. Your net volume and port area and tuning are easy to hit when you have as much space as you do in a Suburban/Yukon XL

    On your power, I'm not sure I'd run 4.00 cubes. Maybe 3.5. Anywhere between 50-65" of port should work. For cone control, I'd stay a little lower on enclosure net volume. You can get away with a bit less per the lower you tune, so something to consider. It sounds to me like you're gathering a pretty good plan.
